Atleast there going to make it right, there a little bit more expensive but the reefbreeders value unit is the same thing, but from a very reputable company with a 2 year warranty

Mac's 20g Reef Build

Yeah, I've been looking into Kessils now. I'll just wait some time and save up. I can do without some corals in this tank for now. Don't want to deal with this Chinese *maze.

I don't think it is a scam, just a mistake. I had an issue with my moonlights and they fixed the issue quickly. Taotronics are some great reef lights for a great price. They are fixing the issue, so roll with it instead of acting out of anger because of a mistake.

It didn't originally say scam... Just didn't want to get in trouble. My parents ordered some watches from these people a year ago also. Apparently it didn't go to well. Maybe it's just this specific seller.?

Haha, I believe you. $225 isn't too bad. Better then $600 for a radion or $400 for a hydra52.

Well, they are all advertised as Dimmable, but not all of them are. Maybe just a way to get sales in. Or they are putting some kind of play on the word.

Yeah, I mean lighting a 125g with Kessils. That'd be pricey.

Lighting any reef tank is pricey. I worked a good amount of overtime to put the Radions above my tank. In hindsight, I would go with the taos all day long and buy a really nice clam or something for in the tank. Mistakes happen and sometimes you'll find a faulty product along the way too...but that goes with anything. My original radion went right before the warranty ran out...thankfully. It is just how things happen.

I would kill to work overtime If it meant I could get radions. That's true though. It comes with hobby. If I can find a more reliable source for them, then by all means id get another Tao.

Right around 2' x 2'. Maybe a little less width. It lights my 24" 20 gallon from side to side nicely.
